So @Sonic's gigabit fiber is so fast that I couldn't perform an accurate speed test in Qubes because Xen network virtualization overhead capped my speeds. ~250Mbps in a dispvm, ~500 in sys-net, ~980 on a different Linux computer.
@feld Only at gigabit speeds. At regular wifi speeds I've never noticed much of a hit.
@kyle wait, your saying there are places in the US with usable internet?
